KIM KARDASHIAN'S TRIBUTE TO THE VICTIMS OF THE MANCHESTER ATTACK

Kim was forced to delete a post that served as a tribute in the wake of the Manchester attack after the beauty mogul faced backlash for making the tragic event about herself.

The post included a photo of herself with Kendall Jenner and Ariana Grande at what seems to be a concert after 22 civilians died at the singer’s concert.

Kardashian wrote:

“I’m praying for everyone in Manchester. This is truly so senseless & heartbreaking. I can’t imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids. Concerts are supposed to be a place where you can let loose and have fun.”

People immediately responded to Kim's post, calling her out for her "inappropriate"  social media post.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN'S POST DEEMED CULTURALLY INAPPROPRIATE

The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star was accused of cultural appropriation after posting a photo in Bantu knots, wearing an Oakland Raiders t-shirt and knee-high boots. She captioned the deleted post:

“Bantu babe.”

The comments section of the post flooded with negative comments from different people, deeming her look “ridiculous.”

Khloe’s sister, Kylie, was also slammed twice for her choice of hairstyle – one during Alexander Wang’s New York Fashion Week show, where she sported a long ponytail made from hair extensions, and another before her 18th birthday, where she wore cornrows.

KIM KARDASHIAN POSTS ABOUT A CONTROVERSIAL “DIET” LOLLIPOP

Fans accused the aspiring lawyer as someone who promoted eating disorders and misused her broad market reach. One comment read:

“It’s not a bad thing to be hungry or to eat!! Stuff like this was so personally damaging when I was younger. I hate that disorder eating is still being promoted. Delete this.”

The video showed the supermodel wearing a blond wig amid a protest and throwing the wig into the air, grabbing a can of Pepsi, and handing it over to a serious police officer, who smiles and accepts the drink.

The video was similar to a viral photo of a woman who stood up to an officer during a protest. Pepsi’s spokeswoman said:

“Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace, and understanding. Clearly, we missed the mark, and we apologize.”

The company also announced the removal of the commercial from different outlets and placing Jenner in a bad position.

KIM KARDASHIAN’S EXTRA TAN INSTAGRAM PHOTO

Kim sparked controversy after posting photos of her makeup brand, KKW Beauty, where she appeared darker than she actually was.

Fans and followers of the beauty mogul accused her of making her skin tone darker than it actually is and over-editing the promotional photo.

Kardashian responded to the issue through the New York Times:

“I would obviously never want to offend anyone. I used an amazing photographer and a team of people. I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off. But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. No one brought that to our attention. No one mentioned it.”

THE JENNER SISTERS’ BAND SHIRTS

Kendall and Kylie thought that it would be nice to have band shirts as part of their clothing line. However, their designs were a big flop and faced criticism after their faces were emblazoned on top of music icons.

Critics said the girls didn’t deserve to be with the likes of Pink Floyd and The Doors on shirts, including Sharon Osbourne, who took to Twitter her comments about a re-make of a Black Sabbath T-shirt.
